The data in Texas Vital statistics can be used to predict how well people will live in the future, the Texas Tribune reported Tuesday.
The news organization said that, while the state’s population has increased by 1.7 percent since 2000, the rate of mortality for the average person has increased, too.
The data can be found on the Texas Department of State Health Services website.
The Texas Tribune’s data source: Texas Vital Stats website.
What are the possible outcomes of the data?
According to the data, people in Texas who died in 2015 had the highest death rate for any year since the early 20th century.
Deaths rose 4.1 percent in 2015, the largest year-over-year increase since 1980.
For comparison, people who died had a 4.2 percent increase in deaths between 2008 and 2013, according to the state.
A person who dies in 2015 is typically expected to live to the age of 67 in 2021.
What can be gleaned from the data from the Texas Vital stats?
Data from the Vital Stats site is not public.
The state provides data from a variety of sources.
For example, the National Vital Statistics Data Bank contains information about births and deaths and the National Health Expenditure Survey includes information about health care spending.
The State Board of Health collects information on the state and local health system.
The National Center for Health Statistics collects data on healthcare spending and health care expenditures in the United States.
What kinds of data are available from the state Vital Stats?
Texas Health Data, which compiles and maintains the Texas Health Information System, includes death certificates, death certificates for the homeless, and other data on the population of the state, according the Texas Observer.
Texas Vitalstats also tracks changes in the health care system in the state of Texas, which is estimated to have a population of around 7 million people.
What’s next for the Texas health system?
The Texas Health Department said Tuesday that it is conducting an investigation into the data.
In an emailed statement, spokeswoman Joanne Peters said the department has requested data from other states to confirm data from its Vital Stats database.
She said the data has been provided to the Department of Health Services for verification and analysis.
“The Texas Health System does not currently have data from any other states that may be of interest to us,” Peters said.
The Department of Public Safety is also investigating the data and is working with the Texas Hospital Association to determine whether the data is accurate.
Is Texas a poor state?
A 2012 analysis by the Center for Public Policy Priorities found that Texas ranked dead last among states in its ability to predict the health outcomes of its residents.
The report found that “only six of the 51 states with the largest share of uninsured residents reported that they have adequate funding to provide health care to all residents in a timely manner.”
